Calvin & Hobbes: Doing nothing

calvin-hobbes-stampWhat makes Calvin & Hobbes the greatest ever is its ability to make you laugh and identify with it. What makes it one of the great treasures is its ability to invoke emotions that you never thought you’d spend on a comic strip.

One of the many Calvin and Hobbes comic strips that I love goes like this:

Calvin diligently studies his calendar. Hobbes stands beside Calvin, full of anticipation. Calvin says: “Well, let’s check my calendar and see what our schedule is for today. Today says do nothing. So does tomorrow and every day after…all the way through the end of August.”

I can‘t honestly remember the first time I read this strip of good news! But I do remember that it made me very, very happy and I wanted to join Calvin and Hobbes on their adventure of doing nothing.

Following are two more comics about doing nothing:


We are always busy doing things, sometimes one should just look at things and think about things without doing things.
